What can you expect
I VALUE INDIVIDUALITY, HONESTY, INTEGRITY, MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS AND EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO FIND THEIR OWN PATH.
You can expect me to respect and value you as an individual.
You can expect me to give you the safety and the space you need to explore past or present difficulties and help you to make the changes you wish to make.
You can expect me to listen empathically, accept your emotions, and not judge or criticise you.
You will have a confidential environment where you can learn to deal with difficulties and confusion, move forward into a more fulfilling life, achieve a sense of well being and improve relationships.
You can expect to work at your own pace, sit in silence or express your emotions, and choose what you want to explore.
The Benefits of Counselling
Counselling helps by giving you the time and space to explore concerns without being judged, rushed, criticised or feeling ridiculed. During counselling you will develop a greater awareness of difficulties, their origins, and learn to accept yourself and situations. You are then free to move on to change your behaviour, relationships and priorities, to lead a more fulfilling and positive life, focusing on your own needs, desires and well being.
“When someone really hears you without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould you, it feels damn good. . . . When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements which seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens. How confusions which seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard.“
